Why do the threads on safety and the recent violence in Tulum keep getting shut down on this forum? There seem to be open discussions on other Riviera Maya forums. Someone keeps asking TA to remove them on this forum. Whoever you are, you are doing a great disservice to this community. People deserve to make informed decisions about where they spend their time and money. It's unfortunate that TA has allowed your personal interests (financial?) in seeing this information squelched, to be more important than the interests of everyone else.
And, to be honest, removing these threads does far more to discourage people from coming to the area than an open discussion does. When these threads keep getting shut down, it makes me think that things must be really bad (probably much worse than they really are).
Come on TA!
